I thought that I would pop in this Friday eve with a card that I shared on the Make the Day Special blog yesterday using Altenew's beautiful Freesia set. I wanted to create something really fresh and light with this image and tried watercolouring with distress inks (which is not my forte!).
I think this got the look that I was going for. The sentiment is from the same set and is white embossed on light blue card.
As this is my first time playing with these stamps I will link up at Darnell's fabulous NBUS Challenge - she has lots of incredible sponsors!
I will also link up at Simon's Wednesday Challenge to use a stamp and at Happy Little Stampers September CAS challenge - colouring as well as play along with my friends at Time Out where the theme is to Make Your Mark.
Thanks for stopping by :)
